Emma Jenkins

I'm fundraising for CALM

I’m walking against suicide. 

My son Harry has just gone through a really tough time with his Mental Illness, attempted suicide, self harm etc - he is now getting the help he needs & is looking forward (with the right support) to returning to university in the next few weeks. Its been a tough time for all the family BUT I cannot praise the help & support he received enough - the outcome could have been a whole different story.......I want to help as thanks for everything that he received x

This October I'm taking on the Lost Hours Walk to deal with grief differently and defiantly, and to remember our sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, partners and friends lost to suicide.

Here’s why:

On average, 125 people take their own lives every week in the UK.

75% of people who take their own lives are not known to mental health services or have not been in touch with mental health services within the last year.

135 people are directly affected by every suicide.

We’re coming together across the country to send a message that that’s not ok. We’re taking to the streets, parks, pavements, public footpaths and promenades to walk against struggling in silence, against being alone, against living miserably.

Anyone can hit crisis point. CALM’s free, anonymous and confidential helpline and webchat are there for anyone who needs support. They’re open from 5pm-midnight every day. Just £8 is enough to fund a professionally-trained helpline worker to answer a call that could save a life. Your support will help fund CALM’s life-saving services when they’re needed most.

You can join my team or donate to my walk below.

I am totally blown away by your donations & your beautiful messages - I was not at all expecting this reaction......but.....I am now so PROUD that I did go 'public' as it NEEDS to be talked about & not something to be ashamed of
